Periculum[1] is the incantation of a charm that allows the caster to send out bursting red sparks from their wand.


The sparks are firework-like in appearance,[1] and had a vast range, shooting up to a great height, then hovering in the spot where the caster aimed. Much like a Muggle flare gun, the spell was used to signal that one was in danger, and thus in need of help.


Periculum is Latin for "danger".
